Merely for the extra storage, I don't find the jeep necessary as I run Stedman420's Bigger Backpack 120 + Player Built Storage and Vehicle Storage SimpleUI modlets (https://7daystodie.com/forums/showth...ple-UI-Modlets).

    The motorcycle... that's one toy I DO rip up the countryside with. Always makes me feel like I'm in a Mad Max movie... minus the anti-semitism and misogyny.

    But I try to avoid video game content that makes me motion sick ever since playing original Doom... while wearing headphones... in a dark computer classroom... using a projector to display my screen 12' x 10' on the wall.

    I'd get so immersed in the game that (1) the janitor would startle the crap out of me as he came into that classroom (also wearing headphones) to empty the trashcan and vacuum, and (2) I'd be so nauseous after an evening of killing alien demons that I often couldn't eat anything for a day or so.

    I think the Gyro even in 3rd person is hard to fly lol but I did master the gyro after a while but its unforgiving if you loose control, so I for the sake of not making people feel sick I will remove it from the configs or leave it commented out.

    I am finding the motorcycle and minibike the best first person experience so far and the bicycle so so .... the 4x4 view from the bonnet is ok ish but I have been testing and tweaking and I can get a view looking almost from the drivers perspective. I have tweaked the motorcycle quite a bit and now you get a view of the spikes as you smash into zombies.

    I have added some extra stuff in the new version when it releases that slows the camera up/down and the left/right movement as that makes things less sensitive when turning and gives a better experience.

    Vehicle First Person View Modlet V2

    Improved view and minimised artefacting on Bicycle, Minibike and Motorcycles.... some minor adjustments are being made for the next version V3 when released to the 4x4 so consider the 4x4 and Gyro as still works in progress.

    As before :
    This modlet is a workaround meaning its 'not fully' true first person mode but as near as possible in an xpath modlet and works in the same way first person works in the Debug Mode so expect some artefacting especially when on the bumpy bumpy roads of random generated worlds, ideally we should have the option to toggle between 1st person and 3rd person views available when the fun pimps get around to it.



    *** Warning *** If you enable the gyrocopter first person view it may make you motion sick as again its not true first person and the Gyro is very hard to fly in first person so for now I have left it at 3rd person.

    The Gyrocopter is diabled in the configs as more fine tuning required but I will endeavour to get it better but if not then the choice is yours regarding the above warning about motion sickness.

    This Modlet is tested and works with vanilla vehicles only

    Download Link Removed as final version released

    New Version Here

    ** Remove Previous Version of Modlet before installing the new version **


    Enjoy !

    Would you be able to create a modlet to turn off the digging zombies? I see you have the ability to turn off ladder climbing, I have no idea if digging is something that could be turned off..

    Ragsy2145 was able to disable zombie ladder climbing using modlets because the file \Data\Config\entityclasses.xml references a property named CanClimbLadders:

    <property name="CanClimbLadders" value="false"/>

    That's essentially how modlets work: adding, changing, or removing XPATH statements or functions in the existing/vanilla game files using "do this to these files" type statements in other files. The beauty of modlets is that they don't get overwritten whenever the base game gets updated, and a properly written modlet may continue to work without modifications even after said updates.

    I'm not sure the same can be done as easily (using only modlets) for zombie digging, as I haven't found any reference to zombie digging anywhere in the XML files.

    Along those lines, I was also looking for ways to disable zombies attacking trees, so people could live in treehouses again (which always felt like something I personally might do in a "real life" apocalyptic scenario). Yes, I can add "special" trees to the game, using a modlet, that zombies can't destroy. But I was hoping to avoid zombies attacking trees in the first place... rather than hearing the annoying CLANG of zombies beating on "god" trees similar to trading post protections.

    As both of those zombie behaviors are likely hard-coded into files that aren't easily alterable by end-users, neither of those are likely things that can be remedied with XPATH modlets.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news,

    Vehicle First Person View Modlet V3 Preview

    I am still working on version 3 of this modlet .. there are quite a lot of factors involved but basically the 4x4 and the Motorcycle have two alternative settings I am experimenting with so there may possibly be two versions of this modlet to try when I release .

    These are Full front view first person or centered versions .

    20190308214847_1.jpg20190308214713_1.jpg20190308223237_1.jpg


    If using 'centered view' there is still some glitching on the 4x4, but with full front view (over hood/bonnet style) you will not notice at all because for the 4x4 it becomes full first person.

    I tried and tested at vanilla speeds and then used Xajar's Vehicle Speed modlet and it gives a nice feel on full first person a real need for speed experience


    The Gyrocopter is annoyingly difficult to set up and I am thinking of giving up on that part to be honest you can have full front view but it's very difficult to fly and is unforgiving and you can loose sense of direction very quickly plus feel really sickly flying it so that may get removed for health and safety purposes

    I will hopefully finish up in the next few days ... spent loads of hours trying to perfect this and I feel its going in the right direction.


    Cheers !

    Brighter_Vehicle_Lights

    During the development of the First Person modlet for vehicles I was not happy with the light given from the vehicles in this mode, fortunately there is a solution and this was something we all initially thought may not work but it does.

    bdubyah checked this out in XML and reported back that it works in vehicles 3rd person and I tried it in my vehicles modlet and it works.

    This modlet works in 3rd person vehicles as well as my modlet for first person ... (except bicycle and gyro as per vanilla vehicle state of 17.2 B27).


    A newer version that now supports Vanilla and both Manux and Guppycurs Custom Vehicles is available here Click here




    Enjoy!

    Ragsy_Vehicles_First_Person_View

    Final version uploaded to github.

    This version of Vehicles First Person View has a refined version of my brighter headlights modlet suitable for the first person view included as the original modlet values are too bright in 1st Person.

    *** Please REMOVE the original Brighter Headlight Modlet and any previous version of the First Person Vehicle modlets before installing this modlet. ***

    Added some tweaks to the vehicle settings to minimise drifting on the 4x4 in First Person, altered Bicycle, Minibike and Motorcycle tilt to stop excessive sway (this also helps stop camera tilts when using Xyth's Helmet Cam Modlet) .
    Xyth's modlet collection

    The First person Views are vastly improved now as part of the final push so there will be no more additions or changes now , I have also removed the Gyro as that was almost impossible to fly in first person (for now).


    Download

    P.S I will be doing some work with some of Guppy's new Vehicles on 1st person view when I get back from my real life commitments.

    Ragsy_Better_Gyro_Handling

    FLIGHT TESTERS REQUIRED


    Added some tweaks to the Gyro vehicle settings to improve take offs and landing and give a lighter feel with better steering control, also slightly better 3rd person view added.

    The gyro will now be able to take off in a shorter distance.


    This modlet accidentally came about whilst trying to improve first person view which i eventually gave up on.

    Download


    **** Warning if you are using another modlet for vehicle speeds then this modlet will throw a warning ***
    If that is the case either comment out the gyro settings in the other modlet or comment them out in mine.

    I found these settings optimal for my modlet (velocityMax set at 18, 30 ) ... I recommend you keep these


    Info :

    To comment out simply place <!-- in beginning of the code line
    and --> at the end of the code.

    Example:
    <!-- <set xpath="/vehicles/vehicle[@name='vehicleGyrocopter']/property[@name='velocityMax']/@value">18, 30</set> -->

    A few tips for success on the new Gyrocopter Physics

    When taking off don't hold space bar that just slows gyro down, just tap space bar once or twice ...the lift force makes the gyro lighter with the new settings and you will find it rises quite easily. The acceleration is so much better at start so make sure you have a good run of flat terrain.

    Landing again just let go of W and tap for acceleration when needed , and as you come down use C or the spacebar to correct the descent, you should find then you gently come down to earth.

    Classic Style Zombies



    This Modlet makes a few changes to zombie behaviour to make them more in the classic style and is best used with other modlets that increase zombie counts such as ....

    More Zombies per Biome (x2 x4 x8 x16) A17 by jrbarrio

    or

    Increase-of-zombies-and-reduced-respawn-delay by rewtgr

    and

    Bigger Wandering Hordes from Xajar-s-Mod-Collection


    Zombie Changes

    Enhanced sound detection rate for zombies so they can now hear you from a lot further away.

    Reduced zombie sight range to fit with zombies more sensitive to sound than sight.

    Reduced view angle of zombies to let sound be the key.

    Zombie smell distance reduced as sound overides smell more in this modlet.

    Adjusted maximum aggro speed to apply to all types of zombies so they will shamble around until they hear you , this can catch you out as you may think you are ok then suddenly they converge on your position and seek an audience with your body parts .

    *** Recommend Server/ Game setting at Walk on all options ***


    Also following the theme of more traditional classic style zombies I have adapted REV6:7-8's reality check zombie replacements to suit this modlet.

    REV6:7-8's Reality check modlets can be found here

    This (my) version:
    My personal thoughts are wolves,bears,dogs,vultures could be viable in the Apocalypse but not glowy screamy or super strength versions. Snakes i hate so they are out .

    REPLACE zombieScreamer with zombieMarlene
    REPLACE animalZombieBear with normal animalBear
    REPLACE animalSnake with animalChicken
    REPLACE zombieFatCop with zombieFatHawiian
    REPLACE zombieSpider with zombieSoldier
    REPLACE Feral Zombies all types replaced by zombieMaleHazmat
    REPLACE animalZombieVultureRadiated with animalRabbit
    REPLACE Radiated zombies replaced with zombieBiker
    REPLACE animalDireWolf with animalStag

    Note: If you are using REV's Zombie Replacement Modlets and prefer them then simply delete entitygroups.xml in my modlet's Config folder.

    I also recommend Kheldons Bigger bunny and chicken modlet for better rabbit and chicken hunts Khelldon-s-Modlets
    This is still available on the 7Days modlauncher although there seems to be no download available in the forums.


    Also adds a 'perk' for headshot system and this is also PVP friendly - Original Code credits to Spider (JZ_Mod), adjusted damage modifiers to suit this modlet. Also now added zombie dismemberment modifier so you have a percentage chance now to blow off heads and it is also possible to dismember arms and legs as of Version 2. The focus still is favoured towards head shots.

    Zombies will not climb ladders included ...

    Please remove any previous version of the 'no ladder climbing' modlets


    Now at Version 2 and I will look to improve this modlet as time goes by...

    Guppy's Vehicle Modlet

    I have been working on updating Guppy's Vehicles Modlet.

    Guppy's Vehicles Modlet soon became Guppy's Vehicle Madness Modlet as it is now a almost a complete copy of the SDX Version without the SDX Scripts , this modlet uses the slightly flawed vanilla spawn option.

    More info :

    Guppycur's-Modlets
